Brentson Buckner rips Peppers on WFNZ

93 posts in this topic

I never will hear anything on that show. Worst sh*t on the radio as far as sports goes. FG is the biggest douche in broadcasting

Frank can really be an ass at times but buck is really good for the most part though as long as he isn't talking about Peppers(reasons for me saying this are posted earlier in this thread.

Isn't it a coincidence that Peppers put up his highest sack total of his career in a contract year?

Means he only plays hard when its in his best interest.

2006 was not a contract year. As a matter of fact, if you look at his entire career, he has had one legitimate "off" year. Why in the hell do people keep insinuating that Pep doesn't play hard? It has got to be something personal.

And, yes, Buckner is a classless, jealous piece of crap that benefited because of Peppers. You can see all of the supposed ills about Pep, but you can't see that. There's something wrong with that picture.

I still like Pep as a player and anything Buck says means NOTHING to me... remember we let him go b/c he was a cancer in the locker room, and he was playing poorly

so Buckner isnt the best gauge to go by

IIRC we released Buckner more b/c of his age and diminishing skills rather than anything else. Which would be evident in the fact that no other team signed him afterwards, even though some had considered it. I put a lot more weight in what Buckner says because I believe he just speaks the truth.

And yeah, maybe he does a have a personal beef with Pep now, because imagine being Buckner playing with him. Not as talented physically but giving your all every play to do your part for the team and you look over at Pep, quite possible the most talented and athletic defender in the league get held up at the LOS by a mediocre lineman and not fight through it.

I wasn't one way or another on Pep, I had hoped we kept him but I had a feeling he was half-assing it on the field, so if he left, I thought it would be cordial and we could get draft picks. What pissed me off about Pep is all the lip service immediately following our loss to the Cards, and then he comes out a week later with a classless move to force the Panthers hand. That in itself tells he has no respect for the coaching staff or organization.

I always admired Buck, he tells it like it is. I loved when he played for us and thought he should've made at least one Pro Bowl... The guy balled. I loved watching his interviews on NFLN when he was still playing for us, his insight and perspective are unique and honest. I put a lot of weight into what he says about Pep, or anyone for that matter.

"Good player, pretty sorry teammate".

Just now.

There's where it stems from.

That's fine. I also expect someone who played along side of him to be a good source. I also know Buckner has an axe to grind. So you can't take it as the gospel.

You "know" he has an axe to grind? And what axe would that specifically be?

Everything Buck said is true...I was in denial because I was such a huge fan, but this guy knows Pep better than all of us and everything he is saying is pretty obvious if you look at it.

Remember all those games we analyzed about how well Pep was going to do because of the rookies he was going up against or how other sack leaders had career days against them...then Pep goes out and lays an egg and doesn't even show up. A complete non-factor.

Pep having his agent announce that he wants out of Charlotte fuq'd us big time so as far as I'm concerned, good riddance. DIAF!

well like i said before, he wont be letting me down again.

the same people that scream peppers didn't take plays off because he had 14.5 sacks are the same people who scream randy moss did take plays off in 2005.
